    Hi there !

    Hello guys,

    I'm 28yo, living in Europe, and loving watches.
    The fact I am here is that I can't afford (actually don't want to pay that muche for luxury watches)

    I was a watch designer, and I'm working in a watch manufacture as product manager for 2 years.

    And the most important, I play golf, even if I still suck at it by now ahah (15 handicap).

    See you, and thanks to the admin for this forum, which is helpful for beginner like me in the Rep industry !

            As a watch designer the pressure will be on to see what you come up with in Franken builds

            Do you have a preference or personal favourite Brand?

              I fully take that responsability !

              I do have a few project in mind, but I may use some custom part, I'll see what's the best. Actually a cross a border every day to go to work, so I may not take a full replica. But some specifics parts like a strap or a case. I will probably use the case of a 41 DateJust, with a jubilee strap and a fluted bezel. I have a 2824 Eta in stock, i've to see if it can fits in, and I have to order a custom dial, maybe with my name on it, there is still a lot of work to do !

              About my preferences... My favorite brand is Audemars Piguet, I like their entire collection. (currently on a waiting list for a 15202.. But it's more as an invest than a pure pleasure)
              As many of us I think, my preferences change year after year. In different field I would choose:

              Entry level : Beaubleu / Maen / Seiko
              Midrange : Zenith / Schwarz Etienne
              Highrange: Gronefeld / AP / Moritz Grossmann / Jacquet Droz / Hublot

              Dream watches:
              AP - 26397BC.OO.D321CR.04
              Cartier - Rotonde Double Tourbillon Mystérieux

              I own a Gen Hamilton Khaky Navy pioneer, a Zenith Elite Chronograph Classic, and a Hublot Big Bang Unico 411 (no Rep yet..)

              The first 2 watches are for sale, I keep the Hublot for the moment, but this may change. (I know I said I don't want to pay that much for Gen watches ahah, but I had these for a (very) good price, I can't lose money on these, that's why..)

                  Probably yes, I've read a lot about the AP rep.. Was looking for a 15202, but the dial seems still very different from the Gen. Maybe a 15500 then !

                  The others rep that I'm interested in are Pepsi, DateJust and Carbon Daytona. These may be the most reviewed watches so It should be easy to choose, well, looks like its not ahah

                  What rep have you got?

                    Very nice.

                    I've ordered an AP15500 (black dial) and a patek 5711 (blue dial) and just waiting on the QC pictures, cant wait.

                              Thanks guys !

                              Sounds like a nice pick ! I just ordered a 15400, should be in the mail soon, I'm pretty exited to see how it feels !

                              Btw, I was scrolling and I found this page from an other forum. These with a leather strap looks incredible ! This may be one of my future purchase, have a look:
